Terrace of Elephants is the other royal terrace besides Terrace of Leper King, with a 2.5m high and 300m long platform with five staircases, three in the middle and one at each end.
King Jayavarman VII was one who built the terrace as a replica of Bayon art style, later used for games and celebrations.
In the middle of the terrace is a rostrum decorated with elephants and a lotus seat. There're also many sculptures of elephants, lions, horses, Apsaras and warriors. Most special artworks are the scene of elephants fighting with lions and a five-headed horse carved into the wall. Terrace of Elephants is the most famous site in the Angkor area.
